I know I have seen the answer for this somewhere, but cannot find it. With WPS Windowsw Installer Editor, how do you set a requirement for winword.exe to exist before Acrobat can be installed?

On the system search page I think. You can search all fixed drives or a limited set of subdirectories for a file.

Then, read that file name into a PROPERTY and add a launch condition. With your launch condition you can specify a message, i.e. "Acrobat cannot be installed without MS Word."

You could also do the same thing with a registry key/value associated with word.

Hope this helps.
